WELCOME TO BEACON HILL
The giant tract of land south of downtown between I-5 and Rainier Valley is known as Beacon Hill. Easy to find because of the iconic 1932 former Marine hospital that sits atop its peak. Strategically sited for quick and easy access to anywhere in the city with its proximity to Highways 99, Interstate 5 and Interstate 90. The American Planning Association, the APA, an organization of planners, citizens, and elected officials named Beacon Hill as one of the 30 great places in America. APA great places include outstanding urban design and aesthetics, multimodal transportation, a variety of uses within the neighborhood, sustainable community participation and involvement and memorable character. Beacon Hill was also recognized for having the largest Olmstead plan green space in Seattle, Jefferson Park. The best views in the city are enjoyed from ‘the hill’ encompassing mountain ranges east and west, the city, and the sound this neighborhood is highly treasured by its businesses and residents.
